Here is a short video (just under an hour) about Borderline Personality Disorder.

Warning, may be triggering for some.

DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) was founded by Dr. Marsha Linehan, who was formerly hospitalized for Borderline Personality Disorder (well before the diagnosis was commonly used) and who engaged in self-harm behaviors. She, as well as others who have come forth to share their experiences, are featured in this film. I look forward to your thoughts and insights. (I got a lot out of it, but I could have done without the dramatic music. That’s just me.)

    I really can't thank you enough for this video. I want to share it with friends of mine who drove me to the hospital when I had a severe BPD attack and overdosed. Hopefully we can spread the word that it is an actual medical condition.

    so happy I found your facebook page, which led me to your blog, which led me to this video. Sure I have this disorder, not diagnosed, only with Major Depression, but will have to tell my therapist.

    Thank you, and welcome! Glad you found something that you can now discuss with your therapist. It's so comforting to begin to understand ourselves!
